Yang for New York

Did you see this huge update about the state of the Mayoral race? 

Andrew has the edge, so a James Dolan Republican PAC is already flooding money into this race to take our movement down. 




They’re scared of Andrew’s anti-poverty policies, like his plan to provide half a million of our city’s poorest residents w/ an annual Basic Income - which would be the largest pilot program in the history of the world. 


They’re scared that Andrew isn’t part of their political machine, & can’t be controlled by special interests.


And they’re scared that Andrew will never back down until New York City’s government works for people, not politicians.


It’s Yang against the Machine. So we need grassroots supporters like you to chip into our campaign to build our city back better than ever. So can you chip in now? All eligible donations from NYC residents up to $250 will be matched 8 to 1!

Let’s get to work.

NYT: Andrew’s Signature Idea - Did you catch this headline from the New York Times about our campaign? 

I think it’s the most direct and effective thing we could do to improve the lives of tens of millions of Americans who are struggling right now, & anything I do in public life will be advancing the goal of eradicating poverty in our society.” - Andrew Yang

That’s right: We just launched our campaign last week & the field is struggling to find answers for Andrew’s progressive set of policies. 


We’re going to get relief for half a million of New York City’s most vulnerable in year one. And that’s just the beginning.


But to make our vision a reality & to eliminate poverty from our streets for good, we need the resources to drive this campaign to the finish line in 1st place. But we’re still $67,194 behind on our kickoff week fundraising goal. 


So, can you chip in now to become a Founding Donor of Andrew’s campaign? 

Onward. Together. 

Yang for NY

Re: Pick the People Over Institutions
The Senate's latest attempt at a stimulus bill has bipartisan support, but it's missing the most popular policy that it could include:
Stimulus checks.
This $900 billion package would fund enhanced unemployment insurance, support the airline industry & provide housing assistance among other things, but it doesn't send a penny to any person w/o going through costly institutions 1st.
82% of Americans favor direct cash relief -- putting money in the people's hands. In today's politics, it can be hard for 82% of Americans to agree on the same facts, let alone the same policy solution to a major crisis.
That's where Humanity Forward comes in. We are building a coalition in Congress to make sure that our leaders do what makes sense -- implement a popular, efficient policy that an overwhelming majority of voters support.
We're working tirelessly before the next Congress is sworn in to make sure that monthly cash payments will become a reality for all Americans, whether in this stimulus bill or the next.
Yours truly,
-Andrew Yang.

If we ask you to stay home, we should send you money to do so.
It’s a simple idea that makes sense. It made sense in March when Congress passed the CARES Act, & it still made sense in the 8 months that followed w/ no relief from Washington at all.
So why was there only one round of checks? 
Did it fail to help people? Did it turn out to be an unpopular policy?
No. In fact, we know that mailing out checks to Americans is highly effective & very popular.
What happened was what always seems to happen in politics these days -- our leaders lost sight of the fact that they need to help people more than they need to “win” in the game of politics.
That is precisely why Humanity Forward has launched a campaign to lobby on behalf of the people’s interests.
We know we can pass monthly checks as a response to this pandemic because it’s a win-win -- a majority of Americans support it, & it solves big problems.
We need your help to be the voice of reason in Washington. We want to build major partnerships, develop key relationships w/ movers and shakers on Capitol Hill & apply targeted pressure before the next Congress starts so we can get a bill on the floor as soon as possible -- but the clock is already ticking. 
We’re laser focused on what matters. W/ your help, we can save millions from unthinkable poverty in the wealthiest country on earth.
Yours truly,
-Andrew Yang

Re: Vote For Who Can't This Yr. -

Image may contain: text that says 'HE'

This has not been a good year for most of us.
We’ve had to endure so much in 2020.
We have endured a pandemic that has taken away over 225,000 of our loved ones and fundamentally changed the way we live our lives.
We have endured an economic catastrophe that has thrown us hurtling into the deep end of uncertainty; where we’ve been forced to make unthinkable choices despite being the wealthiest nation on earth.
We have been forced to contend w/ systems of racial oppression designed to impose unequal justice upon black & brown Americans.
We’ve been forced to contend with vicious tribalism & hate that is fueled even further by foreign adversaries who wish to do us harm.
We’ve lost heroes, from first responders & medical professionals to titans of the civil rights movement &  champions of equal justice.
I want you to vote in the next seven days if you haven’t already.
Vote because of who can’t this year.
Vote for the chairs that will be empty at Thanksgiving dinner this year.
Vote for the people who are in food lines, for the people who have lost their homes, for the people who are forced to choose between their prescriptions & the electric bill, & for the people who know that choice will soon be waiting for them.
Vote for George Floyd, for Breonna Taylor, for Ahmaud Arbery & the countless victims of racist policing who deserve justice.
Vote for the people who work tirelessly in our hospitals -- the people who picked up extra shifts, who skipped birthdays & holidays to take care of our families & our friends.
Vote for John Lewis, for Joseph Lowery & for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
I can’t promise you that voting will fix everything, but I can promise you that choosing not to vote will not fix anything.
If you have already voted, you still have work to do. 
You likely have friends, family & neighbors who haven’t voted yet. 
You probably have an hour or two to spare in the next seven days to pick up the phone & call people who haven’t voted yet.
Democracy is not a spectator sport or a passive system that runs w/o input. It only works when you & I consciously decide to keep it running.
Things won’t be suddenly better on November 4th. The new way forward won’t arrive overnight. That’s why we have something else -- something big planned that you’ll hear about in eight days.
Until then, we have a mission. And if we succeed, we can experience something that I know many of us feel we’re lacking.
-Andrew Yang

He Was a Rising Jazz Pianist. Then His N.Y.C. Dreams Were Shattered.Tadataka Unno lived the dream of a successful jazzman in Harlem.

The police said an attack on the pianist was not a hate crime, but social media disagreed. Now he’s considering a return to Japan. - John Leland, NYTimes
